Bond bosses want killer themeDecember 14, 2006
SHIRLEY BASSEY, NANCY SINATRA, MADONNA and er, BRANDON FLOWERS.
The eyeliner-wearing frontman from THE KILLERS is about to be added to the long list of divas who have lent their lungs to a Bond movie theme.
Brandon, guitarist DAVE KEUNING, drummer RONNIE VANNUCCI and bassist MARK STOERMER have been asked to start writing an anthem for the next 007 movie.
The band are now mulling over whether to turn their hand to the theme tune for Risico, which starts filming next year.
A source said: “The Killers have reached the perfect point in their career to do a Bond track.
“They have the right sound, right look and a huge fanbase, making them the perfect choice.” Producers BARBARA BROCCOLI and MICHAEL G WILSON were delighted with CHRIS CORNELL’s rocky theme tune for Casino Royale.
The former SOUNDGARDEN star is sitting at No2 in the midweek charts with his effort, You Know My Name.
Other bands who have tasted chart success with a Bond theme tune include A-HA, DURAN DURAN, GARBAGE and MACCA’s WINGS.
